I think it is possible to cross flash these drives, meaning if you buy the cheaper base model (iHAS124) you can flash it with the firmware from a higher model, to enable those features.
Only Verbatim discs have be shown to complete burning without error. (don't be a fucking tight arse, buy quality discs) you have been warned :)
